Sausage and lentil simmer. This tastes so nice. I made it with pork and apple sausages and used chorizo instead of pancetta. Green lentils instead of puy lentils. I also used sweet potato instead of carrot and red wine vinegar instead of white. I also added a little bit of Worcestershire sauce. Delicious.
Italian Lentil Soup -- this delicious soup is easy to make, and so comforting! It's naturally vegetarian (or vegan), but feel free to add in Italian sausage if you'd like extra protein. | gimmesomeoven.com
Butternut and Sweet Potato Soup: Ever since I overcame my prejudices about buying pre-chopped fruit and veg, my cooking life has got a lot simpler. And you should know that in Italian markets, storeholders regularly sell peeled and prepared vegetables bagged up to make their customers' life easier.
